Team Red Barn

Hi, we're Team Red Barn

We believe that the spaces we live and work in impact our happiness, quality of life and health. We value local relationships, environmentally responsible design and the New England vernacular. We are a Client-centered practice and think that good design ideas come from everywhere. We take the mantra “work hard and be nice to people” to heart.

Our values drive everything we do.

We do what we say we’re going to do.
We work hard and take action.
We engage in our community.
We care about the natural world.
We support our collective wellbeing.
